Some non-rapid eye movement (NREM) parasomnias, such as sleepwalking (SW), sleep terror (ST) and, in some aspects, sleep enuresis (SE), are considered “arousal disorders” without significant polysomnographic changes in classic sleep macrostructure. The aim of our study was to evaluate sleep microstructure and oscillations of arousal level by cyclic alternating pattern (CAP) scoring in some NREM parasomnias. Nocturnal polysomnography and videotape recording was used to study 21 patients with… Expand
